5:00 Living a Life That Matters Book Study - Led by Rev. Dr. John Regan, Rm #117
Beginning Wednesday, March 4, Rev. Dr. John Regan will lead a book study group on Rabbi Harold Kushner’s book Living a Life That Matters. Kushner describes the human challenge of living in tow different worlds. The first world is the day-to-day world we know best. It is the ordinary world of getting up in the morning, going to school, going to work, and making a living. This is the world that picks winners and losers, makes judgments about beauty and ugliness, and champions the winners of competition. The second world is the world of faith, the world of the spirt. Rabbi Kushner is now 84 years old and explores what it means to live in both these worlds and how we might fashion lives that matter. There are things that we need – relationships, connections, faith, work to do for causes beyond ourselves, and ways make to make a difference. This class is offered at 5pm Wednesday nights March 4 - April 22.
6:00 All Church Dinner - Fellowship Hall
6:30 Adult Bible Study - Led by Rev. Dr. Chris Shorow, Rm #116
Early Christianity has many stories and books related to Jesus and our Bible contains only a few of them. What do those other writings have to say and what can they teach us about some of the early views of Jesus? Writings like the Gospel of Thomas and the Didache, an early Christian manual teaching Christians about ethics, baptism and communion show us how these books influenced the early Christian communities. We’ll look at the four Gospels as well as some of these other documents to learn more about these early Christians.
6:30 Soul Repair Book Discussion - Led by Rev. Dr. David Hockensmith, Rm #117
Beginning Wednesday, March 4, Rev. Dr. David Hockensmith will lead a study on healing the wounds of moral injury. Using the book, Soul Repair: Recovering from Moral Injury After War by Dr. Rita Brock, this class will help people struggling with PTSD, their families, members of their communities, and clergy understand the impact of traumatic experiences on the consciences of healthy people, support the recovery of moral conscience in society, and restore those who struggle. This book helps us to recognize that a society who sends people off to war must accept responsibility for returning them home to peace. This class is offered at 6:30pm Wednesday nights March 4 - April 22.
6:45 Chancel Choir - Led by Diane Ball, Sanctuary
Choir meets Wednesday nights to practice for services and special events. Through the Choir, you can offer your musical gifts through the year in the 11am worship service and on special occasions. Come share your gift of song!
